European Roulette Review, Tutorial, How to play, How to win

You can play European Roulette online on this page without registration. European Roulette is the standard form of Roulette and the first one to be invented. It was actually invented in France, that’s where the word comes from (roulette means little wheel in French and also the word croupier comes from French as well). This version has just one zero, 36 numbers and offers no bonuses or extra features for any of the numbers. It is the classic version of roulette and has an RTP of 97,3%. This is Microgaming’s partner Switch Studio’s take on this classic, it’ a 3D HD roulette from 2019, IMO the best version currently out there (most European roulette currently out there have worse graphics, some casino software have very old versions that just look awful and are not even mobile compatible, this is, might not work on really old mobile devices).

European Roulette - features, rules, betting, and payouts

European Roulette features

The picture shows you how a European Roulette table and wheel looks like. The picture is the screenshot from the 2019 Switch Studios' (a Microgaming partner) online digital roulette. You can play the game on this webpage or read about the rules and other details of this casino table game under the picture.

European Roulette short summary

 

The European Roulette is the most common, widespread, standard form of roulette, nothing special: one zero, no special rules (except optional house rules,La Partage and En Prison see below). This type of roulette can be found at casinos and online casinos all around the world. The chips range between 1 and 200 in this particular online version. You can play European Roulette for free with demo credits above. The game does not offer any bonuses or extra features to players but has a very good RTP, among the bests.

 

European Roulette betting

The betting in the European Roulette game is not complicated, although the different French words can put people off (see below for terminology). Don’t use them if you are not comfortable with them, most casinos see a lot of tourists so they are used to it, but it’s considered good form to try. The European Roulette has inside and outside bets. You can bet on different coloured numbers, even or odd numbers, and split numbers to name a few options and there is a zero. Microgaming’s European Roulette also features “call bets”, so you don’t have to make your bets manually every time if you intend to place your bets the same way.

 

European Roulette paytable, payouts

This is the paytable of the European Roulette the 2019 Microgaming partner Switch Studios version of it.

European roulette paytable

 

Inside Bets (types and odds):

  • Straight up -- 35:1
  • Split bet -- 17:1
  • Street bet -- 11:1
  • Square bet -8:1
  • Line bet -- 5:1

Outside Bets (types and odds):

  • Column Bet -- 2:1
  • Dozen Bet -- 2:1
  • Even-money bet -- 1:1

 

Of course, you can make multiple bets before a spin.

 

European Roulette wining strategy

There is a lot of misinformation about working European roulette strategies and winning roulette strategies in general, so called roulette systems. There aren’t any! Don’t get scammed, especially if people ask for money to tell you their secret “guaranteed to win roulette strategy”, there is no such thing. There is only one thing you can do to hack the system, but that only works in brick&mortar casinos, it’s called wheel bias, and you can read about it here, but it doesn’t work online and it only works with old roulette wheels.

 

European Roulette history

European roulette was invented in Paris, France (the exact city is debated, but it’s certain that it was in France) by a French theologian/inventor/mathematician/writer Blaise Pascal, who created it as an experimental perpetual motion machine, not a gambling device. The fast colorful spinning wheel amazed people (this was before movies and computer games) so entrepreneurial casino and gambling hall owners copied it and turned it into the game we know today. By 1843 it was already widespread in Europe.

 

European roulette rules

No special rules. Everything else is already explained above.

 

European roulette jackpot, highest win

Roulette doesn’t have a jackpot, but perhaps winning with a bet on zero can be considered one, many people consider it special, even though it doesn’t pay more than any other straight up number bet. If you bet on a single number you will win 35x of your bet. That is the closes thing roulette has to a jackpot.

 

European Roulette free spins

It’s not possible to win free spins in European Roulette. However, some casinos occasionally offer free spins (also called free games, same thing) as part of a promotion, check out the offers on this page, if you are interested.

 

European roulette terminology

Because European Roulette was invented in France most of the associated terminology is in French. It’s customary and polite to use the French words in a brick & mortar European casino when talking to a croupier, but if you don’t know them that’s also fine. Here are the the must-know terms associated with European Roulette:

This picture illustrates the so called carr bet, which is corner bet in English.

How a corner, carr bet looks like

Carr: Carr means corner in French. A corner bet is when you place a single chip on 4 numbers by placing it at the corner of the numbers.

Cheval: A split bet, placing one casino chip between two numbers thereby placing a bet on both numbers.

Colonne: French term, means a column, it’s betting on a column, a column bet.

Croupier: The equivalent of a dealer, the casino employee who oversees the roulette table. Sometimes called a host/hostess outside of Europe.

En Plein: Means a plain, a plain bet. Called a straight up bet in English, a single bet on a single number.

En Prison: Literally, in prison. An optional rule applied to even-money wagers* only. When the outcome is zero, your bet will be en prison (in prison) for a subsequent spin instead of just losing your bet. If you win during next spin you get your full bet back but no winnings, but if you lose, you lose the bet. Example: So if you bet $10 on even, but a zero comes, you will be put in prison, next an even number comes you get your $10 back and no more. However, if an odd number was spun instead you lose your bet. Somewhat increases RTP for even-money wagers

*Even money bets are: Red/Black, Odd/Even, Hi/Lo, sometimes written as Manque/Passe–in European (French) Roulette – or 1-18/19-36 (it’s 1to18 and 19to36 on the illustration above).

La Partage: Again, an optional roulette rule very similar to the En Prison. If you place an even-money bet and zero is spun your bet will be divided in half instead of losing it all. This really helps players and pushes the RTP up, from 97,3% to 98,65% for even money bets. This is better than En Prison.

 

This is a picture illustrating the positions of various french bets on a single zero, European Roulette wheel.

The place of French bets on a European roulette wheel.

French Bets: These bets cover certain physical sections of the roulette wheel. They are popular in European casinos, particularly among high rollers. A player making a French bet is actually making several bets at once to cover all of the numbers in each wheel section.

  • Orphelins: Orphans. Betting on the numbers 9,13,14,20,17,34,6.
  • Le Tiers Du Cylindre: The third of the wheel. Betting on the numbers 27, 13, 36, 11, 30, 8, 23, 10, 5, 24, 16, 33.
  • Voisins du Zero: Neighbours of Zero. The largest and consequently most expensive French bet includes: 0, 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2, 25
  • Jeu Zéro: Game Zero. A smaller version of Voisins du Zero, only includes: 0, 32, 15, 12, 35, 3, 26

 

Transversale: French term meaning a street bet a.k.a row bet. Placing a casino chip at the end of a row, betting on the whole row.

Sixainne: French for 6 line bets. A line bet is a split row bet. 6 line bets covers all the numbers.

Finales a Cheval: In English: horse finals . You are betting a series of split bets (a cheval, a horse) on two adjacent numbers on the table and any variations of them. This means if you place a finales a cheval 3,6 you place split bets on 3,6 -- 13,16 -- 23,26 -- 33,36, 4 bets in total.
